Ban conversion of alcoholics to sober persons!
Your attempt to circumvent scientific inquiry is dishonest and ignorant. It took the success of self-help groups like Alcoholics Anonymous, narcotics anonymous, and overeaters anonymous to force the medical profession to recognize compulsive behaviors as diseases and not just a lack of will power or a moral weakness. By banning attempts to use psychotherapy to treat a patient’s dis-ease with their internal thought life is no different than big pharma withholding new medical discoveries because they will cut into their profits (for example, decades of mylanta sales versus a doctor finding the cure for stomach ulcers - big pharma didn’t want the cure, they wanted patients buying their product). You want the patients feelings of dis-ease to continue for decades because it would bring you their money and increase you voting base.
